Corporate Social Responsibility
As a small business, we have the opportunity to totally control & influence everything we do, everything we use and everyone we choose to work with. We want to be as caring and as environmentally friendly as we possibly can, reducing our impact on our beautiful planet.
In 2015, we invested in a Solar Power installation at KAPZ HQ and we are delighted to say that 100% of the electricity that we use is derived from renewable sources . . . the sun :-)
During 2018/2019 we will be looking to add battery-storage to our solar installation.
We now make just two visits per week to the Post Office. Our local Post office is a 22Km round trip completed by car during the winter and by bicycle when the weather is dry!
At the beginning of 2018, we committed ourselves to eliminating all single-use plastic from our business as soon as possible - a challenge, I am pleased to announce, we have now completed - we won't be introducing any single-use plastic into the environment in any outgoing KAPZ packaging.
ALL of our own outgoing packaging is made from either, multi-use, re-useable, recycled, recyclable, compostable or biodegradable materials - envelopes, KAPZ packets, business cards, packaging tape, basically everything we send out to our customers will be the greenest products currently available.
The only exception to this is the packaging we use for our custom bottles as they are multi-use.
With all incoming packaging, we reuse everything - boxes, packaging, padding, envelopes nothing goes to waste and is used at least twice and we are encouraging our suppliers to follow suit.
Here are our current suppliers of packaging materials and printed media - all the supplies we use are as eco-friendly as we possibly can be right now - we are always on the lookout for better planet-friendly products.
- Clear KAPZ Packaging - Packlinq
- Recycled Paper Envelopes - Jiffy Green
- Eco/Plant based Ink Printing - JamJar Print
Please do your own research.
Production & Materials
Every KAPZ product is 100% hand-made in the UK - all materials we use are certified of UK origin, reducing the impact on international shipping and transportation and we are proud to support the UK economy.

In 2016, we took on the role of foster-parents to two beautiful donkeys that had been rescued by The Donkey Sanctuary in Devon (UK) - our personal charity of choice.
George and Little Lad are now firmly established as part of our family and live with us here in Somerset.
We are responsible for their development, care, health and well-being, we love them a lot and spend as much time as possible in their company. As they are based at KAPZ HQ we see and hear them all the time :-)
You can learn more about them and also follow their progress - www.dnkys.com - if you are local, you can even come and visit them too (by appointment only) - please bring carrots!
